Medical Stuff (Bites and stuff)

Medical Stuff (Bites and stuff)

Okay so i’m gonna type this quick because I already typed this up and QFeast reloaded so I gotta do it again. ;-;
About a day, two days ago, I honestly don’t remember, a bump appeared on my leg. It appeared to be a bug bite, but suddenly got more red and swollen. I don’t recall being bit there, but I did have a ton of bug bites all over my body from camping. A week ago, I went camping, and I was bit a lot, mostly from ants and stuff. I only recall being bit once by a tick because I sat on a bench and apparently it crawled on me, but that was it. it wasn’t even on for long, and it was quickly removed.
Pretty much, I just want a general idea about if I should be worried or not since I love to make things into a big deal. I bet five hundred bucks it’s nothing, but better save than sorry, amiright? (Also ignore the small red lines. I was copying what my mom did to make sure the circle wasn’t getting bigger.)

You might want to be more careful because some ticks can carry Lyme disease in the middle of the woods this summer which isn't really a good sign... I also heard that there was lady that died from the tick right before she got to the hospital this year...if things get worse, then it might be serious so you might want to get to the doctor just in case nothing bad happens to it...

yeah, that does look like a tick bite. it's okay to worry, i mean, lyme disease exists. although, it could be worse. yours doesn't look that bad.
here's what i found when i looked it up.

""More often the rash lesion is uniformly red or reddish-blue, is minimally tender and minimally itchy (much less itchy than poison ivy). ... Tick bite reactions are often confused with the rash of Lyme disease. Only 2% of tick bites result in Lyme disease

Does it itch, if so. It can be an big bug-bite, because bug-bites can get very huge

Nope, at least, not that I can remember. It might’ve itched at the beginning, but not anymore.

To be honest it can still be a bug bite, because bug bites can stop itching, but stay huge
